At Raynor Massage, our specialty is to remove all 4 layers of tension: Thinking, Physical, Emotional and Traumatic. Here’s how our trained Raynor Massage Specialists work to resolve your mind and body:
Thinking Layer of Tension – Slow mind chatter, ease the active mind and calm anxious thoughts.
Physical Layer of Tension – Seek to resolve aches, pains, posture imbalances, soreness, tight muscles, restricted mobility and chronic injuries, along with other medical and physical conditions.
Emotional Layer of Tension – Identify how emotional tension manifests into mental and physical issues (how “dis-ease” can often develop into “disease”). Release emotional tension by massaging the abdomen, feet, knees, hands, hips, head and chest.
Traumatic Tension – Ease the effects of long-term tension on the cellular structure of the mind and body. These are often a result of a life-threatening situation; such as a horrific car accident, physical assault, sexual assault, or grief. Raynor Massage has been very successful in helping to lessen the symptoms and effects of Depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Debilitating Anxiety and many other physical and mental ailments triggered by severe trauma.
Before your first treatment we’ll have you complete a questionnaire to ensure that your Raynor Massage Specialist is fully informed of your current health status and needs. All treatments are performed on a sheet-covered massage table with an adjustable face cradle for maximum comfort.
Extra sheets, towels or blankets are provided for more warmth and your body will only be uncovered at the specific areas being worked on. Our specialist will give you time and privacy to remove your clothing to your comfort level; with the exception of your underwear, which much remain on. If for some reason, you prefer to be fully-clothed, we ask that you wear loose-fitting apparel.
The first part of your massage will be to connect with your breathing and will include a quick assessment of your needs. Your Raynor Massage Specialist will identify areas of tension, warm up your muscles, assess your pressure threshold, and check your overall comfort level. Since Raynor Massage is a whole body treatment (excluding the breast and genital areas) there is likely to be concentration on your hands, feet, head, legs, arms, neck, back, hips and abdomen.
The length of your massage will depend upon the needs of your body. Raynor massage encompasses two key stages of treatment: excavation and maintenance. Excavation involves locating the root of problems and then eradicating all 4 layers of tension, requiring anywhere from 1.5 to 2 hours per session. Maintenance treatments assures continual body relaxation and typically last one hour per session.
Following a massage we encourage you to take 10 to 15 minutes to bring awareness back to your surroundings. For those who receive a full excavation massage, abdominal work may release deep emotional tension, which can cause any of the following to occur; laughter, tears, anger, coughing (or a combination of some). Once emotions are released, most people experience a deep sense of calm and peace.
We recommend that you drink plenty of water after your massage. Staying hydrated will optimize the benefits of your massage and prevent you from getting a headache. Most importantly, enjoy your relaxation and rest!
